ELSA Time Poster - Elsa Support

ELSA Time Poster

This is an ELSA Time Poster to show a run down of the session visually so pupils can see what the structure of their session will look like.

This ELSA Time poster structure tends to be what I would recommend for sessions. This fits in nicely with our planning sheets

  • Hello and welcome – is about checking in with the pupil. What have they been doing? Anything they want to tell you about?
  • Emotions check in – how are they feeling?
  • Warm up – a simple game, activity or a chat to warm up or break the ice
  • Activity – working on the session objective and a quick review on what you did last time
  • Relaxation time – a simple relaxation exercise or coping strategy such as breathing
  • Review of the session – what have they learnt? What could they do for next time?
  • Goodbye – ending the session with the pupil

I have included a box to fill in the session number. You could laminate the poster and write that in, in dry wipe pen. This will also help pupils see how many sessions they have had. You could put a peg on the each number as you work through your session with the pupil so they can see how things are changing.

"Such a wide range of resources to choose from - always something that can be used for different ages and situations. I have used so many and return to them time and time again. They are all super, but my favourites are the actual programmes that run over several sessions - for example the Super Girl Group. So easy to follow, it provides great confidence to allow you to really engage with the group rather than worry about what to do next. Brilliant."
